October is tyre safety awareness month and marks the transition in weather change from summery / mild to wintery / hazardous conditions. So, it’s always good to be prepared and make the necessary changes to your tyres and driving habits in advance.
Tyre Safety Month is run by TyreSafe a U.K. based organisation which covers a very broad range of tyre and road safety aspects from holding events, tyre care awareness to highlighting the very real dangers of buying and fitting part-worn tyres.
The Tyresafe organisation has a wealth of information and materials for anyone who is interested in tyre safety, all of which is freely available to download from their website.
This year TyreSafe’s campaign covers all three key areas of routine tyre maintenance: Air pressure; Condition; and Tread depth – ACT. The campaign seeks to encourage all motorists to check their tyres at least once a month every month, and before long journeys.
